Imagine No Malaria – Special Offering on Mother’s Day
Did you know?
This year on Sunday, May 12, Mother’s Day, Central Church has a special opportunity to make sure your generosity will go further than usual. Our Church can help to find a permanent solution for a major health crisis affecting mothers in Africa.
Each year, more than 655,000 people die from malaria in Africa. Up to 90 percent of them are women and children. Pregnant mothers and children under age five are the groups most vulnerable to the deadly disease.
Central Church’s support of the Imagine No Malaria campaign of the United Methodist Church can help reduce death and suffering by 2015.
Your decision to support this campaign is critical to reaching the goal. Thousands of congregations across the United States, including Central Church, have already helped to raise $31.2 million. The next opportunity to join this campaign is on Mother’s Day.
When Central Church receives an offering on May 12th for Imagine No Malaria in honor of your mother, 100 percent of your contribution will go to the fight against malaria. Together, we are making a difference as people reaching out to help save lives from being lost to malaria.
Every 60 seconds, malaria claims a life in Africa. Millions of lives, needlessly lost each year. A continent. Entire nations…slipping away. Slipping through life’s precious net. Unless you hear the buzzing inside you.
Imagine No Malaria is an extraordinary effort of the people of The United Methodist Church, putting our faith into action to end preventable deaths by malaria in Africa, especially the death of a child or a mother.
Achieving this goal requires an integrated strategy against the disease. As a life-saving ministry, Imagine No Malaria aims to empower the people of Africa to overcome malaria’s burden. We fight malaria with a comprehensive model.
Imagine No Malaria helps us take the next step in this fight.
Think of it as Nets Plus.
We continue to support Nothing But Nets and build partnerships, because bed nets are an effective tool against the disease.
We’re doing more…improving Infrastructure, Communications, Education… Read more >>
It’s been killing for thousands of years; since the time of King Tut.
But it stops now.
It’s time to stand together.
We’re talking about a disease that we eliminated in the U.S. in the 1950s, but Africa was left behind.
So, what exactly are we fighting? Read more >>
We are not alone.
Imagine No Malaria has partners to help make beating malaria a reality.
